I was at the Dubai duty free airport earlier this year and a beautiful fragrance caught my attention and I just couldn't stop myself and went to the perfume stall that was selling this beautiful woody musk fragrance. It was Eau De parfum called Pure Musc For Her by Narciso Rodriguez. Which was just launched. I took a sample and left because I had to catch a plane. Then my lovely husband ended up buying it for me! Yesssss! Love him!🥰 It is a new fragrance.The nose behind this fragrance is Sonia Constant! 🌼Review🌼 Packaging is matte finish and looks classic. Now coming to the smell... 🔹️NOTES🔹️ 🔸️Top notes- white musk 🔸️Heart notes- flowers like jasmine and white blossoms 🔸️Base note- cashmeran 🔹️Long lasting-Yes! On cloths it will stay till you wash and on skin it stays till you take a bath. It opens up with fresh clean powdery floral then white musk takesover. Actually When I used it it reminded me of my childhood! Oh man how a fragrance has a power and can have an affect on you. Waho. Tho it reminded me of my childhood still this perfume is very modren and beautiful ! It is not overpowering but yet suttle beautiful, intoxicating and addictive! Besides men love it I know my man does!😊 🔆Retail price- 157$ for 100ml 🌼Rate-10/10 and LOVE IT! .

I got a deluxe size Fresh rose face mask in my sephora play. It is very pricey , famous and hyped rose mask. So I was curious. an hydrating mask with real rose petals suspended in a silky gel that gently soothes and tones with a plumping effect. It is made with rosewater, aleo and cucumbers. . 🌼Review 🌼 After cleansing my face I opened the lid and instantly it reminded me of 'Gulkand' (it is a sweet preserve of rose petals, used as a flavoring in many parts of South Asia.) It smelled like rosewater but not so overpowering. It is a gel like mask. I applied small amount to my damp skin and immediately noticed it had dried roses in it. I left it on for 10 minutes and rinsed. After Cleansing my face I noticed my skin was a bit dry and yet soft. Did it do any hydration I dont think so. I did not notice any significant difference. I have used it for about four times in the past 4 weeks. It didnt as such brightened my skin nor did it hydrate my skin. Good think I never bought the full size. I feel it might be good for very dry skin but I have combination skin and I didnt feel any big or small difference. Also avoid if it you are allergic to rose and cucumbers. . 🔺️Will I recommend? Nope❌. If you realy want roses just splash some rose water on your face! Hehe cost less works better! Lol . 🌼Retail price-$62 for full size 🔆Rate-5.5/10 (for giving my skin softness but not the rest they claimed!). . ❓QUESTION❓-Have you used it? if yes how was your experience❓ .

Hugo boss femme I just recently as you can see used up one of my 50ml " Femme by Boss eau de parfum". 🌼Review🌼 First of all I like the intresting bottle. Now coming to the smell... 🔹️NOTES🔹️ 🔸️Top notes- tangerine, black currant and Freesia. 🔸️Heart notes- jasmine,fleur de lys and Bulgarian rose. 🔸️Base note- Apricot and lemon wood. 🔹️Long lasting-Yes! It has a very nice fresh fruity opening, with blackcurrant. Then you can smell the heart notes floral, with a somewhat uninspiring jasmine standing out. ... Feminine heart notes of Jasmine and Rose are blended with fresh notes of Tangerine and Black Currant. It is not at all strong perfume but is pleasant, light, soft , delicate ,delightful , gentle and feminine but without going overboard on the florals. It is also ideal for every day use and perfect office perfume! Well perfect for me! Will I buy it again? Yes. (After I finish my 100 other perfumes! Lol). . 🔆Retail price-310 AED 🌼Rate-7.5/10 . . .

I got @mallybeauty liquid face defender blush in 'Carnation' in a past @dollmeup_box . First thing it is cruelty free!👍 It is a beautiful cream blush that comes in a tube form.

It actually smells nice and is very pigmented! It has soft yet powdery to matte finish to it. It does not looks over done like a clowns cheeks! It looks more natural and thats what your girl loves!

I got full size Korean brand @touchinsolus no poreblem prime essence in my June @boxycharm. I heard so much good things about the touch in sol face primer that I was excited to test this baby out and I am happy I did! What does it do? It helps makeup stay a little longer it also tightens up pores as well as it helps in keeping the skin silky smooth. Did I mention it is made with Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract! 🌼Review 🌼 1st think I noticed was the fluid in the tube was watery.. so I opened up the tube and yes it was so watery after appling it I felt it had very micro shimmer in it which I do not mind. After the application I did not feel it as such tighten my pores but my skin surely felt very hydrated . Then I applied my foundation basically rest of my makeup and then I did notice my pores looked smaller or minimized. So basically it did what it said tightens the pores. It worked! This Korean brand I feel is the best! I need to try other products from this brand too! So far I Love it! 🌼Rate-9/10 . 🔆Retail price-$23 .

I have been using it for 2 months. I traveled with it and its easy to use. . ➡️➡️Swipe ➡️➡️ . As per what I felt after using it for the last two months was that:- ⚜Silhouette - Contour shade is over pigmented little difficult to blend because its too over pigmented.. but I did it anyway. ⚜Starlight- is a highlighter which is my favorite it gave pretty beautiful shine though it was very suttle looked very natural but perfect for my skin but I used the brighter to give it more glow. Which looked awsome. ⚜Divine- is another highlighter which is beautiful but little darker for my skin but I ended up using it as a eyeshadow topper beautiful it had a beautiful glittery shine to it I used it on my eyelids for a pop of color. ⚜Moonbeam- is a brightener... I Loved this brightener its so smooth and purely. I ended up using it in my inner corner and on my brow bone to brighten up the eyemakeup. I also used it as highlighter which was beautiful! ⚜Stellar- The only think I did not like about this palette was the finishing powder. It was Matt but it was too glitter which was not my preference. ⚜Sublime- is a beautiful pinkish cool stoned blush which is pigmented and perfect for me and it blends very well. It may look like a Glitter face palette but it is not it gives you a luminosity but not glitter as it may seem which is perfect for me. 🌼Retail price-$45 🔆Rate-8.5/10 .
